THE FIVE OF CUPS: The Spiral Tarot and Thoth Tarot Card Comparisons.

The Five of Cups: Disappointment.
Many people inappropriately term some tarot cards as "bad" and others as "good" which is the indoctrinated two-dimensional thinking of our culture. This is errant thought as the Tarot is about conscious energy and its movement as "your multidimensional life". The fives, which have often been termed as bad, are really the necessary disruption of the placidity of the fours. Your inner self is telling the outer self it is time to move! This is also true for the 4 of cups.

The Thoth Card indicates that emotional disappointment makes us fragile (the four glass cups), and vulnerable. Like the murky sea in the background, we become depressed and then angry, as the orange/red sky. We are now off balance (the askew star) and feeling uprooted (the lily pads with falling lotus blossoms). The transformational aspect of disappointment is shown by the universal sign of the butterfly (the roots of the lily pads in the shape of a butterfly).
 
The Spiral Tarot 5 of Cups depicts a woman who seems to have lost her three cups on the Sea of Emotion (The Great Sea of Binah).  Two full cups and the Qabalistic Tree of Life are in the back ground.  The Spiral Tarot seems to indicate the loss or rejection of old emotional ties, suggesting the gain of something better.

The 9 of Cups card, astrologically, is Mars in Scorpio; Mars is the planet associated with vitality, assertiveness and dynamic activity. Scorpio is the sign of depth, thus disappointment is felt deeply "to the core" here. This is not a trivial disappointment such as not getting the right color of car, but a real stinging disappointment that in the next 5 weeks or 5 months that has been or will be experienced. This also could be 5years of disappointment or disappointment that goes back to a period 5 years ago, or even disappointment that has been experienced deeply when you were 5 years old and is still influencing your present emotional state. All of these meanings are determined by where the card lays in the reading.

As I have previously stated, Geburah, the Red colored Fifth Sephiroth, may be sever but brings a necessary corrective in our lives, by tearing away all that is useless thought,  and emotion that is outdated and unproductive.
In this Universe most of us understand that there is only one energy that we can't create, nor can we destroy it. We can however, transfer it and transform it (Physics: 1st Law of thermodynamics).

Transformation is a process of deconstructing and then reconstructing that which is envisioned. Transmitting is done sexually or in some from of intimacy and/or communication, where we are in communion with someone or something. Such as the intimacy of healers. or shamanistic rites etc. The flow of this vital force is often called love, as such we could say that the intimacy of the negative pole as it joins with a positive pole of a magnet proves love. But being Spiritual /Emotional beings, we know Love is more that energy flow, it is a communion of multiple attributes, such as the Tree of Life.  Therefore Intimacy is not just physical touching, tasting, smelling, hearing or seeing, even though those are usually involved; Intimacy is where one Auric Field blends with another; energy weaving into a new pattern for both parties.as the spinning forces of chakras combine in mutual attraction; a multiplication of 7 dimensions weaving with another 7 dimensions, becoming 49. These 49 are really a numeric 4+ 9= 13 and Key 13 is the Death Card, which means a "Spiritual Transformation".
 
However wonderful energy in motion (emotion) is, it also has an end. That would be the second law of Thermodynamics where"...all things proceed from order to disorder." So a Master weaver of Self, would see the disorder in Self-patterns, and deconstruct them and reconstruct a new order of Self.  Here's where the energy conscious state of Geburah steps in to assist us, she makes us view the disorder, and as a corrective, we can now remove the old and build the new. 
 
THE FIVE OF CUPS- DISAPPOINTMENT:
 Is also known as Lord of loss in pleasure. As stated, the planet Mars is in Scorpio. The angels of the Decan are: Livoyah and Pehilyah.

Here the 5 of cups, Geburah is influencing the Mental World; Geburah in Briah. 
 By now you may know that the Alchemical Element-Water is consciousness-emotion and therefor a sever situation is sensually presented in the 5 of Cups.  Mars is violent energy and in the water sign Scorpio, this produces an extremely emotional effect.  Both Cards show that
the once full cups are empty, implying loss of that which is loved.  Geburah is fiery of nature, and still water is  totally at odds with this active force, thus causing a disturbance and loss of pleasure.  This card, if supported by he accompanying cards, can even mean death of a loved one. The inverted pentagram represents the triumph of matter over spirit and where disturbance arises in the middle of ease.
When the 5 of cups is thrown during a reading,thequerent 
  • has been or will be experiencing emotional disappointment for 5 weeks or 5 months.
  • Usually implications of relying too much on others for love, rather than loving themselves.   
  • is experiencing a certain crying over past events, an experience of grieving over what has been lost. 
  • is in emotional discord as one begins to adapt to unsuspected situations. 
  •  is experiencing a regret, loss and separation.
  • The corrective of Geburah is being applied here, and it is the beginning of recovery.
  •  When this card is thrown you may want to release past patterns of disappointment either with the Scorpio people in your life and/or in the next 5 weeks or 5 months, be no longer willing to hold onto past disappointments and will make a conscious decision to let them go.
  • It's now time to transform your emotion into a free butterfly rather than a "worm" in a hard shell of disappointment. Stuff happens to the just and unjust alike and by releasing disappointment, we can then turn anger into a personal ambition to create more motion in our life!
  • This card states, " Release the past, for that is a dead place, fly forward into the sunny now!"
Thank you for your interest, support and comments. May you live long and prosper!
